Hellchick: You think THAT'S one nasty looking marital aide, I think I saw something in Fargo's office while I was at GameSpy that was even scarier.
Mix: I am among the ranks of the Railgun inept. Pity me.
Fargo: I thought how much fun it would be to send Lowtax pictures of Rail Trails.
pharcyde: I think it would look even better if instead of shooting lame rails if it instead shot out the deadly butter nuggets!!! RUN!
Lowtax: It's trail just looks... too messy. I don't like a sloppy railgun. Er, wait a minute, I didn't just say that...

Mix: Argh matey! ....er....oops. Sorry about the obligatory pirate joke. My bad.
Fargo: C'mon, for a game you play as much as Quake II, pitch in the thirty bucks. Mow someone's lawn, for God's sake!
